FYI y'all, in the last 3 months I've received 2 different emails from "Paypal" saying there was a problem with my account. Contacted Paypal both times and learned they were fraudulent. They both looked real official except perhaps for a few too many links to click on to "solve" the problem. Just wanted to share that, "Beware, Brother, Beware".

I get that every now and then. What they are trying to get you to to do is to to log in to your account on a spoofed page. PayPal NEVER EVER asks anyone to do this. They don't even let their people get this info over the phone if you call them. The scammers like to use a current PayPal web page for their crime. The easy giveaway in the grammar and syntax errors on the spoofed email.
